sfgirlbybay book on the way.


i have some happy news to share with you today! some news i’ve been keeping hush-hush for quite some time. i’ve been working on a book! and now that everything’s ‘official’ i can excitedly announce that it’s soon to be published by san francisco’s very own chronicle books. for years i’ve been photographing my escapades around san francisco — the city that i have called home for nearly 20 years — and sharing them in my sunday in the city posts. so i was most flattered and excited when chronicle invited me to share my sometimes quirky view of san francisco in a book!


i’ll be publishing a photographic journal of san francisco — i’ve been capturing the city by each of it’s uniquely wonderful neighborhoods — photographing new images of all my favorite spots, and researching and writing about the city i love so much. the book won’t be out for a while, but if i owe you an email or you haven’t seen me around, now you know what i’ve been so busy with here in my office — maps, scraps and snapshots surrounding me and inspiring me to keep on shooting. thank you all so much for the encouragement and enthusiasm for my photos — from the blog posts to my instagrams — i feel most fortunate to be able to share with you. stay tuned for more news as we get closer to the publishing date!
